 German umlauts

hi there,

i tried to insert data (a string) into a column of a table. this string has
some german "umlauts" like the letters "?", "?", "" (i hope you can read
them like this). well, after inserting them to the column, oracle 7.3.3
saved those letters as "a", "o", "u". it just translated the umlauts to
normal letters and this is something that has to get changed.

does anybody here know what to do to tell oracle that it should keep umlauts
just the way they are?

thanks in advance,
andre

Either your database has been created with the wrong characterset or your
NLS_LANG setting is incorrect. As you don't specify any details about your
database (version, platform, client-platform), it is difficult to help you
out.
You could get the 'native' characterset of the database by selecting from
sys,props$.

Hth,

Sybrand Bakker, ORACLE dbA
